These popular sleepovers take place every two months and are open to Young Friends of the British Museum and their chums. Every sleepover brings temporary and permanent exhibitions to life with story-telling surrounded by centuries of world history, before kids bed down in the Egyptian and Assyrian Galleries. During December's event, kids can explore the museum at night through storytelling and activities themed around the 'Colombian Gold' temporary exhibition.
In addition to sleepover invitations, Young Friends of the British Museum receive a magazine, a gift membership pack full of museum goodies and the chance to attend other fun events.
